The slim and stylish 9 speaker Sonos PLAYBAR is the perfect complement to every HD TV delivering the sort of sound you need to enjoy movies, games and even music. One easy-to-use player that is a real standout.
The Sonos PLAYBAR is no ordinary sound bar. Yes, it connects to your HDTV to play movies, TV shows and sports programs with vibrant, room-filling sound. But, unlike other sound bars which have just one function, PLAYBAR offers wireless access to a world full of music — Spotify®, MOG®, plus hundreds of Internet radio stations and more, just like all Sonos speakers. Control the PLAYBAR using your TV's remote control or by using the free Sonos app for smartphones and tablets to stream digital music.
The 9-speaker Sonos PLAYBAR features three tweeters and six midrange speakers for a fantastic cinematic experience and all from one extremely sexy component. Great if you don't want to fill your room up with lots of speakers. The 9 built-in Class D amplifiers and processing can handle both Dolby® Digital and lossless audio formats. And to finish off what is a very hot item, the PLAYBAR's automatic equalisation self-adjusts to the program material to provide rich, seamless sound.
3.0 Home Theatre: Connect PLAYBAR to your TV with an included optical digital cable for clean, clear sound from TV shows and movies.
3.1 Home Theatre: Pair a Sonos SUB with PLAYBAR to add bass impact to your home theater system. The SUB pairs wirelessly with the PLAYBAR with the touch of a button, making it simple to enjoy full-range sound.
5.1 Home Theatre: Add two Sonos PLAY 3 speakers to the PLAYBAR and SUB for a complete, wraparound home theatre experience. Like the SUB, the PLAY 3 speakers wireless connect to the PLAYBAR so you don't have to run speaker wire around your room. Click here for system details.
MOG is an award-winning online music service with one of the largest and best-sounding streaming catalogues in the industry. It's the only service to offer all of its music in the 320 kbps MP3 format - lower for mobile networks - but of course that higher bit rate translates to better sound. In fact, some of our staff use it frequently to listen to their high-end audio gear. MOG's "Premium" service ($11.99per month) gives you unlimited, ad-free access to their extensive music library of over 16 million songs on a wide range of devices including Sonos® network music players, your computer, your car stereo and your iPad®, iPhone® and Android™ devices. You can even try it for free on a 14-day trial!
